A Season of Lilac.


A season of lilac

Colours of sky and day

Amethyst dawn

Crimson violets and snapdragons

Knee deep lavender

Scent on my fingertips

Drizzle of spring

In a field of butterflies and honey scented buddleias

A swift glides on a whisper of expectation

As the season heals

With days of bloom and rumours of ascension.

Lemon petals

Dance like sapphires

In this fluttering moment

Meadow of blossom.

    I loved all of the details of spring you included in your poem, Alan. Like ‘dance like sapphires.’ Happy Easter, Alan.

    What a wonderful idea–season of lilac. Loved all the color details in this description of spring–which I hope is upon you — tho I recall snow in April when we lived in the Netherlands.

  6. Gabriella says:

    Lilac are just synonymous with spring. What beautiful colors you have evoked for us, Alan! Your spring looks very much like mine.

    I can close my eyes and , thinking on your words, place myself out in that lavender and purple riot of bloom and feel warm sunshine and the brush of bees flitting from bloom to bloom …. beautiful work this week!
